-income americans. any language to the contrary is simply not accurate. >> mr. president. >> obama: let's talk about taxes, because i think it's instructive. now four years ago when i stood on this stage, i said that i would cut taxes for middle class families, and that's exactly what i did. we cut taxes for middle class families by about $3,600 and the reason is because i believe that we do best when the middle class is doing well and by giving them those tax cuts they had a little more money in their pocket, so maybe they can buy a new car, they are certainly in a better position to weather the extraordinary recession we were in to. they are spending more money. businesses have more customers, make more profits, and hire more workers. now governor romney's proposal calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of $2 trillion of additional spending for our military. and he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem is he has been asked over a hundred times how you would close those deductions and loophole, and he hasn't been able to identify them.

losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said, "do not do this" and the republicans had a plan, they put a plan out. they put out a plan, a bipartisan plan, it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done bipartisan basis -- this was a bipartisan basis. governor romney said what we did in massachusetts should be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate, but the fact of the matter is, we used the same advisers and they say it's the same plan. it -- when governor romney talks about this board, for example, unelected board that we've created, what this is, is a group of health care experts, doctors, et cetera, to figure out, how can we reduce the cost of care in the system overall.

passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state, craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the state and then let's focus on getting the costs down for people rather than raising it with a $2,500 additional premium. >> mr. president, the argument against repeal. >> well, four years ago when i was running for office i was traveling around and having those same conversations that governor romney talks about. and it wasn't just that small businesses were seeing costs skyrocket and they couldn't get affordable coverage even if they wanted to provide it to their employees. it wasn't just that this was the biggest driver of our federal deficit, our overall health care costs, but it was families who were worried about going bankrupt if they got sick. millions of families all across the country. they had a pre-existing condition, they might not be able to get coverage at all. if they did have coverage, insurance companies might impose an

to middle-class or ordinary americans. we asked voters whether each candidate cares about their needs and problems. before the debate 30% only 30% said governor romney did. 53% said president obama did. but look at after the debate. romney's numbers almost doubled to 63%. president obama's did move up slightly. he still lead there but romney gained a lot of ground here, scott. >> pelley: anthony, thank you very much. of course as we said this is a little over 400 people who had not made up their minds on which candidate they would support. but john dickerson what do you make of those numbers. >> those are the people mitt romney needs to talk to. these are the people who are -- they may have voted for president obama in 2008, they like him but they just are disappointed and the transaction mitt romney needed to start tonight was saying to those people it's okay to leave him and i'm a safe place to go. that jump in the number of people who thought he cared about regular people, that -- if they could have written a perfect script that's the one the romney people would have written. someb

in writing to the american people. he's running against president obama who when he first ran promised no tax would ever be raised on anyone who earned more than $250,000 a year. we've now seen seven taxes in obama care that hit the middle class directly as well as the many that hit it indirectly. and romney's also changed -- i'm sorry. obama has changed his tune on the promise for the future. the new plan, he said, starting august 8th in colorado and repeated is he won't raise your taxes next year. so after 2013 there is no promise from obama for any american on any tax protection. he's open to raising taxes on anyone and everyone. and he's going to have to because even with his tax increases on the higher income people, he runs a $6.7 trillion debt over the next decade. and that buffett rule tax raises less than 1% of the debt he's running up. he's got to go straight at the heart of the middle class to pay for his bigger government. >> i think it's very interesting. i still have not heard from mr. norquist whether any tax increases should be necessary to deal with the budget

obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise, a study by mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. so for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want medicare -- don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this. and the republicans had a plan. they put a plan out. they put a plan, a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important has to be done on a bipartisan basis and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan baasis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of his debate said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to coope

or part of the solution. you know what? president obama has become part of the problem, and mitt romney is the solution. the other thing he is, in this country, every generation of americans fixes their problems so they can leave the next generation better off. for the first time in the history of our country we know if we stick with these failed policies of the last four years, we will guarantee our children get a diminished future. we cannot allow that to happen. it is our moral obligation to save the american dream for our children and our grandchildren.
